here is a link to the South Florida Free Beaches site, the protectors of the official Nude and Thong beach at Haulover. A good site about an interesting beach.

Probably the only nude and thong beach in the US with regular life guards and beach patrol run by a city. Clothing is optional.  You may find people with long pants and hats but most others will be nude or in thongs. Visit the website and checkout the page on the Florida Law, the photo gallery, the map to the beach and comprehensive directions:

Yes JM, VERY nice beach for nude sunbathing!! I was there back at Thanksgiving last Fall. For some reason the day I was there it was kinda slow, but there's nothing like having a nice long walk from one end to the other totally naked. But I wanted to venture farther down the beach so I grabbed my thong and away I went.

Hi Jim,I live near the beach in Miamibeach and am about 3 miles from Haulover Beach.I go there to tan nude only and just south of there,3 miles down the beach I wear very minimal Dore Bikinis.I rarely get any negative responses,on the contrary,most women seem to enjoy seeing a man in a sexy thong or g-string.Just my 2 cents-cheers--tline

I just got back from Haulover and had a great time as usual.  I love the place because you can go nude on the C/O stretch of beach or wear a thong (or in my case this weekend - a skinz rio) along the rest of the beautiful beach or walk along the sidewalk in what ever you like.

My girlfriend and I got up early Saturday, July 3 and drove down to Miami for the weekend.

We arrived about 10:30 am. Check in time at the Betsy Ross Hotel on South Beach was not till 3:00 so I headed North on A1A toward Haulover.

Neither of us had every been to Haulover and I was not sure if she would like the idea of a nude beach.  It took about 30 minutes to make the drive from South Beach to Haulover but I was driving slow, not sure of the roads and where we were going.

I soon found it and told her that since we could not check in the hotel we might as well go to the beach. "How about this one here" I said. It cost 4 bucks to park, a real deal I say. The lot was packed, we had to park in the over flow area all the way at the rear of the lot.

We gathered out stuff and started toward the beach. Well friends, at this point I was starting to think I had made a mistake. You see my girlfriend does not like to wear a thong in public because she thinks it makes her butt look big and I'm taking her to a nude beach.

As we got closer to the beach she starts complaining that she hasn't shaved her legs and shes not sure if her new suit fits right and so on. I told it won't matter don't worry about it. As we went past the sign at the ramp to the beach I tried to get between the sign and her so she wouldn't see the warning about nude sunbathers. Well that was a useless tactic because at the end of the ramp was a nude guy passing out some literature about the beach.

To make a long story somewhat shorter I talked her into staying. We found a spot near the water and laid down on our towels. I took off my clothes and began to tan.

At this point I must warn all of you who are thinking of going to Haulover about a couple things.

First:
We live in Florida and go to the beach often. We both have good tans and are used to the sun but we were both surprised by how much more intense the sun was. You will burn if you do not use sun screen! If you plan to stay on the beach take plenty of sunscreen and an umbrella, plenty of fluids is also a must.

Second: If you go there thinking you are going to see plenty of hot women forget it. The majority of people there were every day folks you might see at the mall or grocery store. While we did see some young and beautiful they are not in the majority. This really helped me out a lot because my girlfriend had taken a good look around and seen that she was in better shape than many of the women there.

I walked to the water and took a dip. When I returned my girlfriend was topless. It wasn't long after that her bottoms came off as well.

Soon we were both walking the beach and swimming, really enjoying the day. We headed back to South beach about 4:30 and checked in the Betsy Ross.

On Sunday I was nervous about leaving South Beach in the car. We parked in the public parking and the lot was full. The traffic on the beach was really bad. We decided to spend the day on the beach and by the pool. Topless is allowed there and so are thongs. I wore a Skinz M1 and she went topless.

After much celebration Sunday night on South Beach We got up early Monday morning and checked out of the Betsy Ross and headed back to Haulover. We arrived early so there was no trouble parking.

This time she had no trouble getting out of her suit! I took a few pictures of her and she took a few of me. Soon a lady came over and offered to take a few of us together, which we did.

About 1:00 we had to pack up and head back to Clearwater. As we pulled out of the now much fuller parking lot we noticed that there was a line of cars waiting in both directions to get in.

We both had a great time on our mini vaction and wished we had a day or to more. For those thinking of going,there will be a big event on July 10 and 11. I lost the flyer but I think it was national nude weekend.

I suggest you get there early if you go. The Betsy Ross was clean and comfortable and very affordable. Pennies over 100 bucks a night for a standard room. If they quote you a higher price dicker with them. We found a Cuban restaurant on the corner of Collins and 7th Ave that helped out travel budget. The Puerto Sagua served up some great food for very reasonable prices. Breakfast for 2 was 9.00$ Dinner for 2 was 20.00$ It was a great weekend and we can't wait to go back!

I found the flyer regarding this weekends event at Haulover. July 10 and 11 is a celebration of  National Nude Recreation Week. There will also be a free skin cancer screening on July 10, 11 to 3 o'clock near guard tower 27.

I was wondering what Haulover Beach is like, wither or not people liked it.  I dont plan on going nude, I prefer a thong.  Is it strictly mostly naked people or are there other thongers.  Thanks...

I was there about seven years ago, and I strictly stayed in a thong.Most of the women were wearing thongs, and I think there was a couple of guys in thongs. I walked all over the place, and I didn't feel any uneasiness. The gay section is on the left, and most of the guys are nude, but they don't bother you. As you walk towards the nude section, you'tre going to see peoplein a wide variety of swimwear.

I was at Haulover Beach in March and it was very festive. I wore a g-string with the intention of sunning in it. But most everyone was nude! So, when in Rome . . . . I quickly dispensed with the g-string. The gay section is on the left, at the north end of the beach. Some guys were wearing thongs or g-strings, but mainly to work on their tan-lines, so it seemed. Wonderful beach and men and women of all ages. Enjoy!

I'm a 34 yr. old, male thonger and I live in Miami and go to Haulover beach all the time.  It is VERY thong friendly. Not everyone is nude, and I'm noticing more men in thongs every time I go. Nobody will look twice at you in a thong. I mean, they're naked so why would they care? It's a beautiful beach and the weekends are very crowded. By far one of my favorite beaches in Miami.

My girlfriend and I spent 3 days at Haulover July 4 2004. Today we were talking about how much fun we had there and started making plans to return soon. It is a great place to go to be nude or just thong. It is pretty much anything goes.You will see people from all ages and all walks of life. Tatoo's Jewelry shaved or hairy you will see it there. Can't wait to go back!

This is the most thong friendly place I have ever been to. You will feel entirely comfortable thonging here (and pretty much anywhere in the Miami area). I basically spend the whole day in just a thong there from the second I leave my car. Never any need to cover up even when off the sand to go to the bathrooms or walking to your car in the parking lot. Even outside the nude area on the beach you will see plenty of thongs and never feel out of place.

For exactly the same reason, I would rather wear a micro thong on Fort Lauderdale Beach rather than drive half an hour south to Haulover.
Fort Lauderdale has a completely normal crowd and my girlfriend and kids don't feel uncomfortable.  Haulover is a wonderful place but sometimes the crowed is a bit creepy.  While there are some wonderful people you also get gaukers and crusers that sometimes makes it less comfortable.

exactly! i'm really glad haulover is there, and i do like going there, but on my last visit i saw male prostitutes, etc. working the beach.  it's just a little weird for me to have a guy stand there and gawk at you for several minutes. don't get me wrong, i strike up conversations all the time on beaches with all kinds of people, and we usually wind up laying out together or saying hello to each other the next time we're there. i don't have any problem with guys looking at me or talking to me,  but i had a problem with guy one time where he wouldn't leave, and starting to pull it out in front of everybody,,etc. so i had to  get rid of him. don't want any kind of security problems on the beach or anywhere else. as for haulover, i had just as much fun at the royal palms crowne plaza on collins.--wore a gstring on the beach, back up into the pool area, and back to my room! basically lived in a thong day and night -don't think i've ever been as comfortable wearing a thong before!

I was in So FL on business, and got a chance to go to my favorite beach, Haulover. I always wear a thong to and from the car, and always walk the beach to the north of the nude beach in a thong. It's never crowded north of the nude beach, especially with the hotel construction going on. The beach is patrolled every few minutes, but I've never been bothered. I usually walk up to the next group of hotels and then back to the nude beach. A great stretch of beach for a newbie thonger. Let's get out there! Don't worry about thonging in front of the Ocean Palm...those staying there probably wish they brought their thongs. The Haulover parking fee is the best 5 bucks you can spend in FL.

I find it ironic visiting South Beach and Haulover that the best looking women are wearing thongs and topless-----same as South Beach.

For people watching I prefer South Beach---especially better looking girls.  Keep in mind that Haulover is about 75-85% male beachgoers too.

Sorry to hear about your bad experience at haulover eimeo. I have had some great times there as well as some unpleasent experiences. I find if you go as early as possible there tends to be a lot less trouble makers. Also, I recommend that if you can go on a weekday it is much better. Once the tourist clear out the beach is not nearly as crowded as in the winter time. Also the beach just to the north of haulover is a great place to thong. I'm usually there about once a week when I dont feel like driving down to south beach.

I posted a question about Haulover on this board, once, but never got an answer that I saw, and don't know where I posted it now anyway, so, I'll ask here.

Some time back (years) I saw a clip on TV about Haulover.  They ware talking to people from a sort of "keep it clean" volunteers, that apparenty deal with people who were getting out of line by reporting them to the police, if necessary.  I think that is just fine.

But I've read reports on this board, where people were complaining about the conduct of some men, who would come over and stare at you and massage themselves.  That seems like the sort of thing that would get them in trouble, but apparenty does not.  I certainly would not like it.

So what gives?  Just what degree of inappropriate behaviour do they tolerate there?  (I don't plan on do it.  On the contrary and depending on the answer, I might decide to skip the place if I ever get down that way again.)

On some weekends you may get a thousand people at haulover, makes it difficult to patrol. I have only seen one person "patroling" the beach for illegal behavior. I think the story you heard was a little bit overblown.

Nude people are usually quite peaceful. I agree, Likely the report is overblown.

We have been to haulover a lot, but not recently. The problems are likely really there from time to time, but you have to be watching for problems to find them and the normal visit to Haulover is a pleasant experience- though it is not our favorite beach for none of the mentioned reasons.

I was there last week, the weather was claudy but too much mens there... I just counted two girls plus one other that looks like a model she was with a photographer doing some pics with very smalls gees and topless was fun to see all the swim swits that she wear it in like half an hour. Also the beach looks like a gay beach, too much mens/mens couples walking nude like Adam in the paradise, I dont like it too much the ambience but overall was a nice experience.  other guy and me with thong.

This was my first time at haulover, not a bad experience.. Yea I wasnt to fond off all the naked gay men, I prefere to wear a thong.  Walking to the beach I covered up but on the way back I walked through the parking lot in a koala thong.  A few stares and one dude with a video camera driving slowly around me, didnt bother me though, thats what u get for thoning in public i guess.

I go to Haulover quite often, in fact I was just there today, and here's my take on it. First off, I think it's a beautiful beach with easy access to parking and only $5 to get in which you can't beat. Weekends there are very crowded which makes for good people watching. There is usually a good mix of men and women, both straight and gay. The north end is generally known as the "gay part" of Haulover but it really doesn't make a difference. The majority of people are nude, but I always wear a thong. Today I saw at least three other guys in thongs, two of them with their girlfriends. I have never felt uncomfortable there and no one has ever said anything negative to me. The lack of thongers will get you some looks, but I actually like that. I'm 35 and have been wearing thongs for about 12 years, both swimsuits and underwear. Guys, you won't have any problems if you just act confident and don't let yourself feel intimidated. Be a proud thong wearer and you just might get others to start wearing them as well.

It's too bad you had a bad experience at Haulover Eimeo.

That's probably why a lot of the best looking women there are wearing g strings and thongs.  There are too many guys that are not shy in getting close to women and trying to stare at --well what the thong usually covers.  It's too bad there are too many weirdos there.

I think the large portion of men, high ratio of men to women on nude beaches and especially that one are the reason that fewer women want to come there.

Yeah Haulover can be unsafe even for guys because the weirdos are sometimes bold. I've been followed and one had the balls to even try to grab a feel and I'm 5'11 255 pounds (think linebacker build) and still was messed with. But once that situation was handled with my trademark look of death stare I was not bothered for the rest of the day and I had peaceful day at the beach.

Now we have never had that bad experience, but some of the people at Haulover are not the most beautiful people in the world- somewhat scuzzy occasionally. You have to be accepting if they don't bother you. We have been on holiday lots of summers in Cap d' Agde France and learned to accept the bad with the good.

Business took me to a conference in Miami for two days. On one afternoon I managed to get out to Haulover Park beach. Beach was reasonably populated, but as usual it was 90% men. I enjoyed the afternoon but didn't get as much sun as I had hoped due to some high clouds moving in. I walked the length of the nude beach wearing only some sunscreen and experienced nothing negative. People look, but there were no rude comments or sexual attention. I have a well defined tan line so the white spots tend to emphasize the fact that I'm nude. I did see 3 or 4 really pretty ladies. Most went nude, some wore thongs or went topless only. One really cute one would lay out nude well away from the water's edge, but the one time she and her female friend (who was not a naturist) did go for a swim she put on her thong and bikini top. Not sure whether she was modest or simply trying to preclude the digital photography which probably occurs there.

I saw no inappropriate activity on the beach or on the trail from the parking lot. Due to construction, part of the trail passes right alongside Collins Ave. I just didn't have the nerve to walk the trail in only my thong. I kept my shorts on. I guess my thinking is that it's one thing to be nude on the beach, but to be nearly nude in the parking lot is inviting extra (probably unwanted) attention.

The park is undergoing construction and will really be nice when it's finished. Clothed construction laborers walked the beach a couple of times but did not linger. They get this opportunity several times each day so it's probably no big deal. Currently, the restroom facilities and most of the showers have been demolished. The future shower locations will be much better because they'll be nesseled in the dune -- closer to the beach. I hope that it will then be possible to shower off while nude rather than having to put on at least a thong swimsuit as is now the case. All day parking at the northern most lot is only $5.

I plan to be in FL in early Nov. Any problem in wearing a tiny Dore g-string in the parking lot and walking to the nude beach in Haulover? Can this suit be worn on the beach outside the area designated C-O? I also plan to go up to Apollo on my trip home. Is this suit adequate for the non-CO beaches there? Hope the weather holds. Looking forward to my first g-string and nude experience.

It's probably within the limits of the law, but like I wrote - it is a temporary dirt path extending from the exit of the pedestrian tunnel alongside busy N. Collins Road before the path turns east and heads for the beach. You will probably pass right by numerous other people assuming the weather is good. I would just feel wierd doing it. It's advertising for undesired activity whether you intend it or not. You'll probably pass by fully clothed construction workers. If that sounds like fun, go ahead.

Once construction is completed on the park (most likely by late spring 2007) the environment may be more condusive to walking from parking to beach in only a thong or g-string.

My first time nude in public was at Haulover! I used to live on the west coast but business would pull me to the east coast and I always ended up at Haulover. Great beach, nice people. I hate to read that others have had a bad experience. I now live in the Bible Belt of SC and there are no nude beaches and thonging is a definite no no. I miss FLA!

I walk from the parking lot to the beach in just a thong everytime I go to Haulover, including the stretch along Collins (which is really only anout 50 foot long). Never any problems or comments. Everyone knows what to expect when they are in the area. After all, people go there to get naked, so a thong is not really that outrageous. By the way. The areas south and north of the C/O area are totally thong friendly and have seen many thongers there both male and female. Miami is thongers paradise!!!

Looks like we may be headed down to Ft. Lauderdale early October for a football game. We were thinking about hitting Haulover while we were there. Would like to stay close to Haulover so we could enjoy it Friday afternoon, some on Saturday depending on game time, and Sunday am before checking out. We have heard of the Rooftop resort but that is the only one i can find any information about close to Haulover. Can somebody help us out here. We are not looking for anything more than clean, safe, and affordable but close to the beach. Maybe even within walking distance. We would also like to hear more about the male/female ratio thing. My wife is fine when there are other women around but if it is all men there is no way she will get nude. She hates to be the only woman, makes her feel strange. All help will be greatly appreciated. If you need some info regarding the Tampa Bay area just ask.

Just north of Haulover Beach is the Ocean Palm Motel, within a two-three minute walk to Haulover.  This is an older type motel, not many frills, etc.  Rates are generally under $100 per night, maybe lower in October, as that is not peak season.  This motel problably gets most of its customers from Haulover visitors.  There is a pool at the motel.  While there is a sign in the office banning nudity at the pool, it has been my experience that rule is often disregarded during the evening hours.

Unfortunately, the Ocean Palm motel is located on prime waterfront land.  Both the Day's Inn north of the Ocean Palm and the Olympia Motel, south of the Ocean Palm have been torn down to make room for condos, which are under construction north of the Ocean Palm.  South of the Ocean Palm, there is an office trailer selling condos there, but construction has not started after several years, since the Olympia was torn down.  There are ongoing reports that the Ocean Palm property has been sold for condos in recent years.  The latest report seems to be that the Ocean Palm will be there for "one more season".  No one seems to know for sure.  The owner of the Ocean Palm is well along in years, and it would seem he will "take the money and run" at some point. 

     I have not personally visited Haulover in recent years.  However, I have a friend that visited there twice this past winter and he noted the situation was as described above.  The north section of Haulover is mostly male, but the south end of the clothing optional area is mixed male and female.  Running Haulover Beach on "google" should give you several reports on the beach situation

     It should be noted that the bible thumpers in Tallahasse have introduced several anti-nudity bills in the current session of the Florida Legislature, some of which could effect the legality of the nude beach at Haulover.  At last report, most of these bills have been shelved, but we all know that the "fundys" are always up to no good in telling others how to live their lives.

     At any rate, check out the Ocean Palm for your fall visit. 800-231-6932  305-944-3040  Enjoy your trip.

What is the condition of ocean palm I would like to stay there but I see on some forums that it is a dump, drug dealing ,etc, etc. I'm not looking for the works but I don't what to have to deal with drug dealers and the likes. Anybody who has stayed recently in the last few months, how was your stay there?

I spent Tuesday afternoon at Haulover beach.
Admission to the parking area was free since nobody was maning the toll collection booth.
Weather was perfect, and I got some sun which will tone down the contrast of my thong tan lines.
Population was probably higher than 95% male. This is just disturbing to me for some reason. I enjoy the weather and freedom to lay out nude, but the lack of a representative cross section of society wierds me out. One guy asked me to rub sunscreen on his back. I declined.
I really don't care if it was innocent or not - I just not interested.

Construction continues at Haulover park. The bad is that there still are no public toilets, only disgusting, stinky port-a-potties. I'm sure everyone pees in the ocean. Also there are many construction guys around the park so it would be ackward to walk from parking lot to beach in only the thong. You'd be begging for comments from them. Still, I'm sure they've seen it all by now.

The good is that the shower constructed on the beach side of the dune is working so you can walk to it nude and rinse off the salt and sand.

The following day I spent the afternoon in the Lummus Park section of SOBE and had a more enjoyable time as the crowd was 50/50 male/female. A more normal composition.

My girlfriend and I just returned from a four day stay at South Beach. While TS Noel screwed up the weather for beach going we did get in a few hours at Haulover.

We arrived about 10 o'clock Tues morning and there were hardly anyone there. The ocean was very rough and the wind was blowing about 20-25 knots. Every so often a little rain would fall. A little later we had more sun than clouds and the wind died down a little.

More people started showing up around noon and by the time we left at 3 there was about 200 beach goers, mostly men. We had a pretty good time despite the tropical storm.

The wife and I were just there last week and had a wonderful time - there were lots of other nude folks there too.  We stayed at the Ocean Palm Hotel, very close to Haulover and we loved it.  We were naked on the beach for three days - met some wonderful folks there too

Hollywood Beach  is in Broward County,just a few miles away from Haulover beach which is on the north end of Dade County.  The following is from the Sun-Sentinal news paper that is read in Broward, Palm Beach and Dade counties.

Nude beaches good for economy, Broward legislators told

Advocate says Haulover Beach outdraws Marlins, Dolphins

A nude beaches advocate presented Broward legislators with some revealing figures Thursday.

They're good for Florida's economy, said Richard Mason, of the South Florida Free Beaches and the Florida Naturist Association, who asked Broward's state lawmakers to oppose any legislation that would force nude beaches to close.

He said the closest one to Broward, Haulover Beach in Miami-Dade County, is an economic engine, drawing tourists from other states and countries to a place where they can enjoy a beach without the encumbrance of clothing. Twenty-seven percent of Haulover visitors come from outside Florida, Mason said.

Mason termed Haulover "the most successful beach in the state of Florida." He said it outdraws the Florida Marlins and Miami Dolphins combined — a comment that drew titters from the crowd.

Mason also claimed enormous economic impact from Haulover, between $400 million and $800 million a year.

Other people appearing got questions from the dozen legislators present; none asked anything about nude beaches.

 Why do you plan to wear anything on a nude beach?

I had a so-so experience at Haulover when I went last year with my girlfriend.  I couldn't wait to go, as this would be my first nude beach experience.  We went in the middle of October in the middle of the week.  I did my research and when we walked in we made a right and rented two lounges and an umbrella.  We had the guy set them up further south where there were several couples and more of a mixed crowd.

I enjoyed lying out nude and jumping in the ocean with my girlfriend and the overall feeling was awesome.  However the whole experience got a little more uncomfortable once we were there a while.  First of all, there were several gawkers walking through in full street clothes.  How stupid and obvious do they look?  Next there were also several men just wandering  aimlessly around everyone on the beach, including one guy who was fully aroused. This guy continued walking around pretty much the whole time, and he seemed awfully proud of his manhood.  They weren't walking along the beach, as several couples did, these guys were weaving around people on the beach, and did it several times.  Also, when we were in the ocean and entering the exiting the water, just about everyone on the beach were just staring at us.  At times it felt like we were putting on a show for these people.  I don't know what they were staring at.  Maybe because we weren't regulars, maybe because we were fair skinned and not tanned like they were.  We both have average bodies so it wasn't that either. We weren't doing anything outrageous or obnoxious.  Finally, on the way out there was a guy standing at the exit of the beach and when he saw my girlfriend he began to swing his junk like an elephant's trunk.  It was ridiculous.

I'd definitely go back, don't get me wrong.  Other than the one bad story above I've never heard anything negative about Haulover.  I'd love to go early in the middle of  the week when it isn't too busy and have the place to ourselves for a little while.
